A few weeks ago I encountered a Mini on a curvy mountain highway on the way to work. When he saw me in his mirror he really got on it and the game was afoot! I assume his car was heavily "leaned on" as I had to work really hard to stay with him. I wish I had gotten a chance to talk to him, but I had to turn off for work. It was the most fun I've had in a long time and I keep watching for him so we can play again and maybe compare notes on our toys.

Keep in mind that a Mini S does the 1/4 mile in 6.9 seconds and a stock GT does it in 7.5 seconds. If you have a stock GT the Mini S won't be easy to dust. You'd better have better driving skills. It may only have 200 HP but it is a lot lighter than we are.

Yeah, I would love to have a Cruiser that would run the quarter mile in 7.5 seconds. Agreed, he means 0 to 60.

RODRUN, if you don't smoke him with Stage 1 then you'd better hang it up.[?]

If you ever bet on anything you can bet if I can find this one I'll race him, heck I'll do it in front of the local black and white.
I would take the ticket just to shut him up.
